July 29, 2019 - Two senior King’s College civil engineering students are spending their summers interning for well-known engineering firms.
Civil engineering major Paige Molnar, has been interning for Skelly and Loy, based in Harrisburg. Molnar has worked on projects conducting field surveys, developing erosion control plans, investigating soil, and utilizing computer aided design (CAD).
Natalie Coffee, an environmental science and civil engineering student, is working for Borton-Lawson, as a Power-Civil Engineering intern. She has been working with GPS surveying equipment and has worked extensively on powerline rebuilds. Coffee also has had the opportunity to travel to Lancaster to do a sight-distance measurement for temporary minimum-use driveways.
“Internships are an opportunity for our students to explore the different aspects or specializations of civil engineering. They are able to contextualize what they learn in the classroom,” said Dr. Tabitha Sprau Coulter, assistant professor of civil engineering at King’s.
King’s will graduate its first class of civil engineering students next May.
